    Default Just cannot upload a photo

    Hi all, new here

    Bit embarrassed that this is my first pot but I have tried to understand the post regarding uploading photos but I just cannot get it to work and the video isn't working. Could someone please give specific directions? My file just sits there no matter the file size I put in.

    What OS and browser?
    Keep your image under 1MB.

    Yep - this is a common issue. And what’s worse the site doesn’t indicate the issue - just doesn’t upload the photo! Very 1990s!

    You can use an image resizer or just email the image to yourself and choose a smaller size for the images in the email browser (at least that works with iCloud!)

    I now use my mobile almost exclusively here, and just use the website. Never liked Tapatalk
